FabLab Chemnitz - The open workshop in "Karl-Mach-Stadt" - 3D printer, milling machine and more in common usage <3

The Fablab Chemnitz is a project of the Stadtfabrikanten e.V. in Chemnitz and has set itself the goal of encouraging people to collaborate on projects and innovations.
It provides access to the tools and methods of digital and traditional production. In the past few years, the members of the association voluntarily prepared a workshop in the district of Chemnitz-Sonnenberg and set up and built a wood and metal workshop for classic production processes as well as laboratories for 3D printing, laser cutting and electronics development. A solid core of active members and a broad network of supporters, companies and knowhow partners were built up. The members come from a wide range of age groups and occupations, from trainees to skilled workers, university graduates to experienced scientists, from electricians to mechanics to electronics developers and more. We convey that it can also be fun to learn and to be creative before a career orientation arises. Through a direct practical relevance, we convey participation to knowledge providers, knowledge-holders and the transfer of knowledge. The Fablab Chemnitz regularly participates in events to promote interest in STEM topics and creativity among young people, in particular and the public in general, e.g. MakerFaire Saxony, MakerSpace meets PaperSpace, different district events, our own court festival 2017 & 2018 andso on. Also in cooperations, e.g. the promotion and support of student projects in the context of competitions such as "Jugend forscht" or by founders in cooperation with the founding network Saxeed is FabLab's active partner in the implementation of initial project ideas and prototypes.

An excerpt of our statute:

The purpose is achieved, in particular, by supporting, implementing and promoting cultural events, workshops and projects, socio-cultural activities and exchanges involving initiatives, non-profit organizations, individuals and the social space.

Our wish: take the chance!

The use of our different technology is rated by low fees . With these we finance technology, space, electricity and so on. The use of our workshop is self-responsible (Do It Yourself or Do It Together). We are clearly no service providers! You must read the terms of use, have recognized the user rules and if necessary complete a technical operation license - depending on prior knowledge and requirements on the usability and complexity of the machine itself. We want you to be familiar with the tools and be able to handle them safely in order to avoid/exclude/minimize damage to hmuans and machines.
